Blow for Pritchard on Harry Flat­ters

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Ja­son Pritchard suf­fered an­other blow to his ti­tle de­fence in the MSA Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship when he failed to fin­ish the Harry Flat­ters His­toric Rally.

Af­ter go­ing off on each of the pre­ced­ing gravel events, Pritchard and co­driver Phil Clarke re­tired from Epynt last week­end with en­gine is­sues.

Pritchard was sec­ond over­all when the en­gine broke while flat out on the sec­ond stage.

“It was go­ing re­ally well and just let go. But Phil reck­oned it was maybe the best I had ever driven un­til then,” he said.

Pritchard now needs strong scores on each of the four re­main­ing rounds to have a shot at an­other ti­tle.
